I read so many post on here and I do not get on this site very often and I usually create a new username every time I get on here. I am in a tpapn program with Texas. 
however I have different views then some others for sure and I’m ok with that. I have different views on Things like dieing, the board time frame for dealing with licenses, my views on how nurses should be treated when applying at jobs, and also including how the general appearance of a nurse should be ( considered hygiene is maintained however I do not expect a miss or mr galaxy including health) I learned all that can change in an instance. I am still learning things about myself personally and I just want to get back to nursing so I can continue a wonderful career and also pursue education in other fields. 

I only like to check on here periodically with anything that I would like to share about or talk with however I have just got my life back going with nursing after a decade. And it was well worth it. I hope others are able to find their way and continue on in this life’s journey. I am just an average normal person. Best holiday wishes and party safely

Hey there, I read your post and am wondering why you create a new username every time you get on this site..is it because your views differ from the majority? 

I enjoy conversations with people who think differently and voice (not scream lol) their opinions.

How long have you been in the monitoring program? I just started my 5 year sentence in October, and I’ve gotta’ say that the stipulations and orders I received is intense and extreme. However, I admit I brought this on myself. I’ve been “clean” for 6 months and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. I was not forced or required, I was just ready to be done with that roller coaster, enslaved, chaotic life. I am so grateful for a second chance at life. 

Did you stop nursing because you were forced? I’m glad you’re back doing what you love. I am unable to find a job (because of my restricted license and stip’s). I’ve been treated horribly, like a second class citizen. My stip requires that I work at least 16 hours a week in order to keep my license...but NOBODY will give me a chance and hire me. I’m at a loss. The board will be suspending my license because it’s viewed as non compliance. I’m very stressed and not sure what to do next. 

Anyway, best holiday wishes to you!

Oh thanks for the reply....  I get wild with thoughts but I have to keep them under somewhat control....  I want back in this because I want to get to higher levels in the learning side of it like nurse practitioner. However I’m just a regular guy who’s bald with very little income. However I want to keep going in school to show this board office I might have bipolar issues however I can still learn and get up to a higher level with them including other areas outside of nursing....  things would be wonderful if it did not take this board years to deal with disciplinary actions.

Such packages are extremely rare. You may  have to adjust your expectations!

I’m just going back into them...  I just don’t want to look stupid... if I self retrain in this I would like to try a hospital....  I just know how to follow the orders and do the skills.... I don’t want an illness to occur while I’m taking care of them so I’m sending them to the er over anything...  stumped toe their going could be broke... cough their going could be pneumonia....   broke fingernail could be gang green...  paper cut life flight

that’s my drift.... I’m going back into skilled nursing facility... I’m so nervous and excited

No I haven’t yet but when I worked over night on the weekends before I came into several times I had to call 911 or transport for someone to go to the er. I had several cardiac arrest, grand mal seizures, not feeling right, disabled on hospice and that’s just to name a few. It was the only way to get them to a doctor. If the facility had anyone on call I was unaware and just used the er like a dr visit. However most needed an icu or er.

That’s all I learned to do and the skills and give iv anti biotics. I am glad to be supervised that way I can have a buddy during all this. I’ve seen a facility basically fall apart with just two LVNs working with 80 pts of all kinds of conditions. I get worried for my license but I think it’s really fun to work the floor as much as possible and be there for the residents.
